Seattle Mariners SP Erasmo Ramirez was promoted from Triple-A Tacoma in order to start the club's game against the Boston Red Sox on Thursday, July 11. He took the 40-man spot vacated when the club designated SP Jeremy Bonderman for assignment, and the Mariners optioned RP Carter Capps to open up a spot on the 25-man roster for him.
Fantasy Tip: Ramirez has some flaws, but he generates strikeouts and limits walks, and there's plenty of upside, so mixed leaguers should be on his trail and pick him up if their leagues are even remotely deep.

Seattle Mariners SP Erasmo Ramirez will come up to start Thursday, July 11, against the Boston Red Sox.
Fantasy Tip: Ramirez is 3-3 with a 3.09 ERA and 42 K's in 43 1/3 innings at Triple-A Tacoma. However, he has been vasty inconsistent. He has a 5.08 ERA in his last four starts after allowing two runs in his first 20 2/3 innings at Tacoma. He has a lot of potential, but growing pains should be expected.

The Seattle Mariners are dealing with an open spot in their starting rotation, one that is likely to be filled by SP Erasmo Ramirez. However, SP Blake Beavan has been solid in a long-relief role out of the bullpen lately and has starting experience. Ramirez is sporting a 5.06 ERA at Triple-A Tacoma after allowing three runs and seven hits while walking six in 5 1/3 innings in his last outing. A remote possibility would be SP Taijuan Walker, who is 2-0 with a 0.56 ERA with 16 strikeouts and five walks at Tacoma. SP Danny Hultzen (shoulder) is nursing an arm injury and hasn't pitched in July, so he's not an option.
Fantasy Tip: Grab Ramirez in all AL-only leagues if he isn't owned already. If he's the one to take the rotation spot, he's worthy of consideration in deep mixed leagues, as well, even if it's a short-term stay in the rotation.

Seattle Mariners SP Aaron Harang (back) will be scratched from his start against the New York Yankees Thursday, May 16, with lower back stiffness. SP Hector Noesi will start in his place. Harang is 1-4 with a 7.30 ERA in five starts. Noesi is 0-0 with a 3.86 ERA in four relief outings this year.
Fantasy Tip: Noesi is only a recommendation for desperate AL-only leaguers, especially if this winds up just being a spot start. If Harang's back winds up keeping him out longer, Seattle could look to recall Erasmo Ramirez from the minors.
